     At this point in my life I’ll take my jeans any way I can get them- Distressed, skinny, boyfriend, straight, cropped, etc.!  Don’t get me wrong- I like a pretty party dress as much as the next girl, but that also means actually having time to shave in the shower, and I’ll just get very real for a moment- sometimes my “shower” consists of deodorant and teeth brushing. Gone are the days (pre kids in NYC) of long, luxurious showers with not only plenty of time to shave but time to indulge in all the latest bath products too (a one time favorite activity)!  Currently I’m grateful when I get use soap!  Now a shower is for one purpose and one purpose only: To get clean (ish), and sometimes shave, in 10 minutes flat and  That. Is. It.  Hence why jeans have become a key staple in “mommy wardrobes” all across the globe.

     And while we’re on this subject, white jeans have become my latest obsession!  I always feel chic and sexy in them, even if 5 minutes before I was breaking up a sisterly spat over Shopkins or trying to get gum out of 5 year-old’s hair with peanut butter (I swear it works)!  How I love to wear them?  With all white of course! (I’m a huge monochromatic fan.) That being said, the secret to making an all white look anything but mundane- making sure each piece has various textures! This white lace top (pictured) with flower overlays is EVERYTHING and more, and just what you need if you want to make your all white look pop! And guess what?! You can shop for it now (just click the link) shop.daramichllestyle.com! You will be so happy you did, PROMISE!!!

     Isn’t it amazing how some of life’s best moments happen when you least expect it!? Like Serendipity’s “frozen” hot-chocolate, pizza at 2 am, rocking your favorite distressed denim (complete with strategically placed holes) with Piaglle Louboutins in nude, and pairing Dior pearls with Target plaid. The latter- is going down as we speak and, if I do say so myself, it’s seriously perfection! (That is- in my humble opinion.)   Check out my #ootd featuring “Mise en Dior” pearl earrings and ring from the “Tribales” collection and plaid button-down from Target!  I think even the people at Dior would agree that this combo is quite chic!  Like I always say don’t ever underestimate a store that sells nail polish, organic chocolate milk, cheerios, Disney princess dresses and fashion pieces that could complement couture perfectly- all at the same time!  Target- it’s like a dream come true!!! Omg did I really just write that?! #mommyhood

I am all about black and white and have always loved the contrast of the two colors when worn together or the chic monochromatic look of them when worn separately.  I mean as a fellow New Yorker walking 5th ave in head to toe black was as routine for me as drinking coffee!!! This season, however, I totally fell in love with the combination of both- in the color gray.  It started with a purchase of amazing gray Rag & Bone jeans and grew from there.  In the end gray became my go-to color pairing it with everything and anything in my closet- from brights to neutrals, sparkly statement necklaces, and designer shoes!!!  I never thought I’d love anything more than black and white but this winter I’ve realized gray brings a whole new level of chicness to a wardrobe!!! Check out how I wore gray for my #ootd below!!!
